People who are at Encuentro can probably think of hundreds of social interventions that go beyond challenging social norms to actually creating social change. Part of DS4Si’s mission is the help activists and organizers see the power in social interventions, so we couldn’t pass up this opportunity to hear your examples. We will catalogue these interventions and share them with activists and organizers in multiple formats.
Kenneth Bailey is the co-founder of the Design Studio for Social Intervention (ds4si). We bring interventionist and artistic sensibilities to complex social problems in the United States. We work with artists, activists and academics to that end.
